Lincoln Police say two people are facing charges following a standoff that lasted several hours Thursday evening.

Lincoln Police, State Patrol and SWAT surrounded a house at 3435 N 11th Street. The teams arrived at approximately 4 p.m. and after SWAT approached the house and called for the individuals to surrender. Police say 19-year-old Anthony Park and 20-year-old Javontae Timothy left the home and were taken into police custody.

Twenty-one-year-old Kesha Hamilton later emerged and surrendered after SWAT members saw her through a window. Police called for more people inside the house to come out. A search warrant was served and police, along with a K9, entered the home to search for other suspects. No one else was found inside.

Police say the incident began when Park and Timothy pulled up next to a man and a woman who were playing frisbee in a Save Mart parking lot. Police say Park pulled a silver handgun out of a bag, pointed it at the victim's chest and asked, "what are you looking at?" The men drove away and no one was injured.

The witness gave police a good description and got the license plate number, then tracked the car to the home on N. 11th Street.

Police say 19-year-old Anthony Park was arrested for terroristic threats and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. While 20-year-old Javontae Timothy was arrested for accessory to a felony and 21-year-old Kesha Hamilton was arrested on an unrelated warrant.
